There is so much to love about the new modern aesthetic. Rather than being  antiseptic and cold, this elegant style incorporates luxurious natural fabrics, organic florals, and simple, statement-making jewelry. These exquisite gowns designed by Emily Riggs were inspired by the subtle hues of sunsets found in Normandy. Paired with an amazing cradle bouquet and the softest of flushed cheeks, we hope to see more brides embrace this aesthetic.
